Jeremy Goldstein, known for heading the law firm called Jeremy L. Goldstein & Associates, LLC, is an expert in advising clients about executive compensation and corporate governance matters. He is a lawyer who spends time writing and speaking about his expertise. Another thing he likes to do during his free time is to give back to the community. Goldstein organizes wine dinners in order to raise fund for The Fountain House, a local charity that he has been supporting a couple of years ago.
Although The Fountain House became a group in 1944, it was until four years later they will become an official organization when they bought a building in 1948 as a base of their operations. After more than 50 years later, the charity is still going strong, with over 1,6000 members contributing their talents and skills to the community. In 2014, the organization has been recognized by the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation because of its efficacy in method, which won the company the Conrad N. Hilton Humanitarian Prize.
With the partnership of a lot of supporters such as Attorney Jeremy Goldstein, The Foutain House has been transforming the lives of its members. Their operation has been able to give employment to a lot of people with mental illnesses, which enables them to provide for themselves and contribute to society. In addition, if a member would want help for furthering up his or her education, the organization will find opportunities to help the member. With employment and education, as well as the friendships and times built with other people, members will have improved overall health. In addition to this, there is also an increased fulfillment, sense of purpose, and stability
One of the foundation’s biggest goal is to lessen or remove the stigma that is being associated with mental health. Although they have been active for decades, the stigma is rooted in the culture, which makes it hard to overcome. Because they rely on supporters who offer help financially through donations, each amount is helpful and important to them to further their cause. One of the main drivers that help them in their cause is Jeremy Goldstein’s wine dinners.
Last year, the dinner that Goldstein organized managed to get $56,000 from the proceeds of two dinners. This year, Goldstein once again organized an event which is titled “Mental Illness” You Are Not ‘A Rhone“. Although there is a $5,000 entrance fee, the dinner-goers will have an excellent time because of the fancy menu offered in the venue, which is on the Nomad Hotel Roofdeck. In addition, guests were able to enjoy the wine in E. Guigal’s vintage collections which includes La Mouline, La Turque, and La Landonne, which are some of the most prestigious wines around.
